WINNER OF BEST TRAVEL PRODUCT (for Children): GOLD
WHO: BedBox by JetKids by Stokke
WHAT: The BedBox a ride-on, carry-on and sleep-on suitcase for kids.
WHY: With travel getting back on track, we’re all about making travelling with children easier, and the judges agreed that this was the perfect travel accessory for young children. Developed by a former airline captain and his wife – evident in the Aviation-inspired design – with a simple idea to create a seat extension allowing a child to lay down or sit more comfortably in their seat (ummm, where do us adults get one please?). Not only that, we love that the BedBox provides enough storage for weekend trips or hand luggage and fits under the seat or in the overhead compartment with standard hand-luggage dimensions. The swivel front wheels made for excellent manoeuvring, meaning kids can easily steer their own luggage! (We live in hope…)

WHO: Curious Columbus
WHAT: Away We Go Fabric Quiet Book for children aged 3+
WHY: We loved the ‘When I grow Up’ fabric quiet book from last year’s awards so, it stands to reason we would equally adore the ‘Away We Go’ travel version. The perfect screen-free activity for young children when travelling or, even just the car ride to the supermarket. The judges remarked on the fully zippable design with meant no losing any parts, the soft carry handles which meant kids could carry with them anywhere and the engaging 10 pages of play for fine motor skills and sensory stimulation.

WHO: OLIVIO & CO
WHAT: Kids Sunglasses
WHY: This stylish 100% UVA/UVB protection eyewear brand is inspired by the beauty of the Mediterranean for kids and families. But, what sets them apart from other children’s sunglasses is the light frames that are soft and ultra-flexible ,meaning they adapts to kids’s growth and the daily wear and tear. The judges loved that each pair comes clipped into a cute carry-case that can be attached to any bags, and the 100% bio-compostable paper pulp eco-packaging (that actually made a good DIY crafting box).
